Rochester: Yoga & Tarot Workshop with Good Witch Yoga

December 27, 2015 at YogaVibe585 in Rochester.

Interested in tarot but unsure where to start? Love yoga and looking for ways to enhance your experience? Join Jesse for a yoga and tarot workshop that will encourage spiritual growth, dynamic engagement of the body, and a deeper sense of curiosity and compassion.

Practicing yoga and reading tarot cards are two ways that many
people learn to tune in, reflect, and deepen their connection to
themselves and the world around them.

During this open level, body-positive Hatha yoga practice we will explore the themes and lessons of the tarot using the principals of alignment and the moving meditation of yoga
to cultivate a deeper understanding of our minds, our bodies and our relationship with the Universe at large.

No tarot or yoga experience is required for the workshop. Bring a tarot deck (if you have one) a yoga mat & journal and a shawl to keep warm and cozy during reflection. :)

$30/pre-pay $35/day of workshop

New York: Max Weber Conference 2015: “The Power of Constitutional Courts in a Globalizing World” (Part II)

December 03, 2015 at Deutsches Haus at New York University in New York.

Deutsches Haus at NYU and the NYU Center for European and Mediterranean Studies present the Max Weber Conference 2015 “The Power of Constitutional Courts in a Globalizing World” (Part II). Since the second half of the 20th century national Constitutional Courts and transnational courts have spread worldwide. Yet, there is little knowledge on the relationship between national and international courts and the transformation of judicial power in a globalizing world. The idea of the conference is to bring together scholars, as well as judges, in order to explore the changing landscape of judicial power and to discuss the legitimacy and effectiveness of this power. We will focus on the decision-making processes of these courts, the judicial dialogues and interactions, and the ways in which judges of transnational courts identify a European “consensus” or even the existence of an international trend in the interpretation of human rights.

The conference opens on Thursday, December 3, at 6 p.m., with a keynote speech on “The Emergence of Global Law Systems” by Saskia Sassen (Columbia University) followed by a reception.

Brooklyn: Melissa Staiger: Push with the Tide

December 06, 2015 at Trestle Projects in Brooklyn.

Melissa Staiger’s Push with the Tide is a solo exhibition at Trestle Projects, curated by
Trestle Gallery’s Chief Curator Katerina Lanfranco.

Hundreds of paper and painted circles in different colors percolate through the surface of the images as the figure-ground relationship in these works pushes back and forth like the ebb and flow of a tide. Works on paper are displayed in a site-specific manner that activate the unique architecture of Trestle Projects’ exhibition space. Panels with textured relief, incised lines, and found objects introduce a three-dimensionality and deeper inquiry by the artist into her exploration of the circle as material, form, and metaphor.

“Moving paint around is a sensual experience for me,” Staiger explains. “The marks that I make in the form of bands and waves are painted to express a constant state of flow.”

Sacred geometry, esoteric anatomy, and elemental energy find a minimalist visual language in Staiger’s paintings and works on paper. Her direct use of media presents the viewer with an aesthetic experience where the meditative patterning of circular motifs vibrate against restrained color field backgrounds. Riding the current of her creative research, Staiger’s studio practice pivots on geometric forms, and this body of work explores the structure and symbolism of circles with methodical focus.

Come by, dive in, and push off.
